    You are going to have so .. much fun! Last time I was there Mary Jo herself cut my fabric. ( Note if you are in a hurry, find someone else to cut.)
    I ended up being there for 5 hours, and that did not include the lunch break.

    Have fun. A friend and I went a few weeks ago and my son spent our visit carrying bolts back for the staff to re-shelve them. I brought home a huge addition to my stash.

    Cheers, K

    I am looking for florals, my new favorite, and I want to do "Affairs of the Heart". I know I can probably use stuff from my stash, but DH doesn't know that, so it will be my excuse. ;)

    oh how exciting! I live 2 hours from there and it is such a wonderful place :)

    be prepared... they don't have buggies, you have to get a paper slip when you walk in at the customer service counter. You grab a few bolts, go get them cut and put the cuts in a hand held basket. Once the basket gets full - check out, take it to the car - go for lunch and then come back :)

    it is an amazing place!

    have fun

    Great place. About 1.5 hours from here. Don't be in a rush that is for sure. Enjoy

    You are going to have a great time there. Just be sure to wear very comfortable shoes! You can't believe there's that much fabric and notions in one place until you see it for yourself. Don't forget to check the scrap boxes at the end of some of the aisles. Have fun!

    I've been there one time! The first day my friends and I went, we didn't spend a dime! We were awestruck! However, we made the "mistake" of going back the next day...well, it was a good thing we were in a van!

    One word of advice, if you see something you like, buy as much as you can. I got home and decided I'd like a few more yards of a batik and they had already sold it all!

    I am so envious! Hope you have a safe and blessed trip.

    Love the place! I'll get to go again in a couple weeks when I am in the Carolinas'. Back by the restrooms, there is a table of misc. deals on fabrics...also there are FQ tables in that area for $1. You may have to ask where it is because you can't see it from the bolt area. Have fun!
